    You know, I have to feel that the wife and I are blessed beyond measure. She has a Farcebook account to keep up with the family, especially the grandkids, and on Farcebook, she keeps seeing family members that are much younger than us complaining about the need for knee or hip surgery. We don't have those issues, even at our age.

    Of course, I attribute a lot of my blessings in that I was anemic as a child and could never play any sports other than Little League baseball. Thus, I don't have a lot of joint damage.

    "Though the vicious can sometimes pour affliction upon the good, their power is transient and their punishment certain; and that innocence, though oppressed by injustice, shall, supported by patience, finally triumph over misfortune!" - Ann Radcliffe

    Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.
